Dear 2 year old Peppa is a courtesy post that we are helping find a home. Last summer, her owner' became quite ill and was unable to care for Peppa, her sister or their cat friend. Both the cat and Peppa's sister found new homes, but Peppa is still waiting. She is house and crate trained , up to date on all shots, spayed and will be microchipped. She likes to go for rides and does well in the car.

Peppa is a very special and quirky gal. She loves all humans, and when she knows she is safe adores sleeping in bed with you. She does well with cats and enjoy other dogs. She is a beautiful girl and actually does smile. We will try to get a photo of it because it is quite adorable when she flashes those teeth. At 42 lbs, she is just the perfect sized dog for your family.

She does prefer a calmer and scheduled household. She would be great company for someone who works from home as she loves to stay near her human. She doesn't have to be on the couch with you, but know you are home with her. She does best when she isn't being surprised, but knows what to expect. She is a bit shy at first but will do just fine once she trusts you. She has started some medication that has really helped her with any anxiety she had and is doing well.

Although, she was hit by a car at @12 weeks old, and underwent 3 surgeries to save her leg, it doesn't stop her from doing anything. She gets around absolutely fine. She loves to play with other dogs and a fenced yard would be a great added bonus for her.

Peppa has sponsorship funds to help with training because we believe that when the right person comes along, obedience training would help build a bond and help Peppa trust her new family. She also gets a bit overexcited when her people come home and will jump and play and nip a bit. My own dog is exactly her age and still does this as well. However, some very basic training has helped him correct this.

If you are interested in talking to Peppa's foster, please contact us at and we will put you in touch with her.

About Old North Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Old North Canine Rescue (ONCR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all volunteer organization comprised of people who believe the world is simply a better place with dogs in it! Serving Alamance and other surrounding counties, we are dedicated to reducing the number of dogs in county shelters by providing the foster and adoption services of shelter pets and networking shelter dogs. We are dedicated to reducing the number of owner surrenders to the shelter through our Pet Helpline program, education about heartworm disease and prevention, referrals to community resources, and behavioral training and assistance for owners who are considering surrendering their pet, and matching people and pets through our Canine Connection program.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter or office location. Old North Canine Rescue is a network of volunteers and all dogs live in homes with foster families. Approved adopters can meet dogs at their own home during a home visit. All others interested in meeting our dogs can find them at the following monthly adoption events:

The first Sunday of each month, we are at Pet Supermarket in Burlington, NC from 11-3

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adoption, please fill out an application online, or email us at for more information! If you are looking for another dog you don’t see listed, please check out our Canine Connection program – which will match homeless dogs with adopters! All dogs are fully vetted (spay/neuter, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested, on heartworm and flea/tick preventative and microchipped). Our dogs all live in foster homes after being pulled from shelters or surrendered to our organization. Dogs over 6 months of age are $150 and puppies are $175.

The adoption process for ONCR dogs is as follows:

*your application is received and reviewed
your references checked
*a home visit is conducted to meet the family and see where the dog will be living
*meet & greet with the dog (this can be done at same time as home visit)
*all adoptions begin with a two week trial (the check for adoption fee not cashed until trial period is over)
adoption finalized!
*Happy Tails!

**Please note: We often receive several applications for each dog we have. This is especially true for puppies. Because we are an all volunteer group, not every application will be able to receive a home visit. If the application doesn’t indicate the family would be a good fit for that particular dog or puppy, one of our adoption coordinators will contact you to discuss other dogs that may be a better match. There are often applications from locations that we simply don’t have the time or resources to be able to conduct a home visit, especially quickly. If at all possible, we will do our very best. We try to have volunteers in areas within 2 hours of Burlington and Alamance County. With also work with other rescues that will sometimes do home visits for us. Thank you for your understanding.
